Visualising Medical Heritage and Innovation at the Glasgow Science Centre

The School of Simulation and Visualization is very excited to take part in the upcoming Visualising Medical Heritage and Innovation – Meet the Experts session being held all day on March 16th alongside our long time partners from the Glasgow Universty’s Anatomy Facility.

This will be a great opportunity to talk to the scientists and software developers working in this field, and see first hand some of the technology SimVis is currently using. We will also have some of our projects on hand, including our recent work with Haptic Motor Skills Training for Liver Biopsy Procedures, which combines cutting edge Virtual Reality and Haptic technologies, and an Interactive Educational Canine Anatomy explorer, which uses touch-table technology to allow you to explore the skeletal anatomy of man’s best friend – for a truly ‘hands on’ experience!

An Interactive Educational Canine Anatomy application will be available on the SimVis touch table.

There will also be additional historical and cultural artifacts being presented from the Royal College of Physicians Heritage, which you can find out about from their Blog.

You need to register to attend this event due to limited capacity. More details here: https://www.glasgowsciencecentre.org/learn/education-experiences/british-science-week
